The only problem I remember reading about is that removing the earlier Photoshop version sometimes leaves Lightroom (if installed) unable to send a file to Photoshop due to not being able to "see" the newer Photoshop as being installed. The fix seems to be to reinstall the latest version of Photoshop. I think deactivating the Photoshop programs before removal or reinstallation is advised also.

To solve this "problem" the quickest way without application clumsiness/problems, and if you are familiar with «Windows» 'Regedit', is:

('s are just field limitations, for instance, type 'regedit' is for you to type (only) regedit)

1 Choose |Start > Run|

2 Type 'regedit' in the Open box, and then click [OK] to start the Windows Registry Editor

3 Navigate to the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\

4 Right-click on the |App Paths| folder and choose |New > Key|

5 Type 'Photoshop.exe' as the name of the new key, then press [Enter]

6 Right-click on the 'Photoshop.exe' folder and choose |New > String Value|

7 Type 'Path' as the name of the new value, then press [Enter]

8 In the right pane of the registry, right click on the 'Default' value and choose |Modify|

9 In the 'Value Data' field, enter the location of the 'Photoshop.exe' file on your computer
Include 'Photoshop.exe' at the end of the path.

For Adobe Photoshop CS5 - default location - Enter 'C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Photoshop.exe'

(If you have Adobe Photoshop CSx or installed Photoshop to a different directory, change the path as appropriate)

10 Click OK

11 In the right pane of the registry, right-click on the 'Path' value and choose |Modify|

12 In the 'Value Data' field, enter the file path for where the Photoshop.exe file is located on your computer
(This is the same as step 9, except omit 'Photoshop.exe' from the end)

For Adobe Photoshop CS5 - default location - Enter 'C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\'

(If you have Adobe Photoshop CSx or installed Photoshop to a different directory, change the path as appropriate)

13 Click [OK]

14 Exit the registry

It's Done!

Best regards,
Pedro
